This information booklet is part of a series developed for teachers, parents and students. The Student booklet was developed to provide:

  • Up-to-date facts about illegal drugs, their use and effects;
  • Information about how to help someone who has taken an illegal drug;
  • Information about how to talk to a friend who may have problems because of drug use;
  • A guide to making informed choices and how to handle difficult situations.

[Positive Choices is an online portal to help school communities access accurate, up-to-date drug education resources and prevention programs. With input from teachers, parents and students across Australia we are compiling resources that are engaging, interactive, and proven to improve student wellbeing.]
